Play OverviewPlay Overview

Hell Of An Office (2023) is a traversal game about escaping an office job (literally in Hell) before you're engulfed in lava. By chaining together different movement abilities, you work to reach the end as fast as possible. It stands out for the emphasis on speed through ambitious combinations of your abilities, all in the pursuit of getting the best time worldwide.

You play a new employee at the underworld stationery company HellO and must escape from the misery of never-ending work. But to do this you have to get through one hundred levels using your rocket-launching stapler before the ever-rising tide of lava engulfs you. Along the way, you meet the other employees of the company, from a sentient stapler to a skeletal clergyman, and can get involved in their bizarre activities.

Play involves running, jumping, dashing, and launching through each level to reach the portal at the end. Your stapler lets you boost into the air of any surface, and you have a dash you can use on the ground or while airborne, replenishing every time you land. Other abilities, such as rings that propel you, are introduced as you progress. Upon clearing a level, you get a grade based on your time and can see how you compare against all other players. Getting better times by experimenting with ambitious strategies is encouraged, and as each stage is only a matter of seconds long, you can quickly iterate until you find the best way to go.

The result is a game that encourages you to be ambitious in how you use your abilities to find the fastest routes. Gradually you rise up the leaderboard and are encouraged to push the limits even further.
